I live "behind the Orange Curtain" and it makes a lot of sense as "the new Burned-Over District". Just like Upstate New York in the 1830s, California has become "the Weird Religion Capital" of the USA and the hangover has to set in sometime.

Wild Revivals, Weird Religions, X-Treme forms of established religions -- something's got to give eventually. Will the burnout go all the way to secular pseudo-religions (like Marxism, Objectivism, or Politics Politics Politics) or just a general "Take Your God And Shove It!"? Or "Yeah, Sure, Whatever..."?
